I received my Autumn issue of TAKE TEN yesterday and actually I didn't expect to have
something published as I had completely forgotten about their challenge in Spring. But
they just published a card I had sent in long time ago, here it is:

Starting a mini book ....

I couldn't sleep, so I thought about creating a mini book for the little one.
She was picked up late afternoon yesterday :(
We will never forget her anyway ...

Lotte ...

Bad news!

We will not be able to keep Lotte with us. Emma and Cookie have changed so much in their attitudes
towards us that we decided to give her back. This is so hard on me, she's such a lovely little thing, but
what we have built with the other two over the past 8 years is so valuable, we don't want to miss it.

Cookie strays a lot now, she won't come home until very late at night. She has NEVER been outside
at night before. Emma doesn't want to be petted any longer, she is very sulky.

It was my wish for many years to have a little "red girl", it didn't work and I'm a bit devastated now.

Lotte will be picked up on either Friday night or early Saturday :(

Some 30+ years ago .....

..... I remember using baby food:

Now we need it again since Lotte is way to skinny and already sick with a cold. She sneezes and her nose is running. Did I really need this? 

She's such a loving little thing, always friendly, needs to get close all the time and still so sick. We have yet another vet appointment today, how many more do we need, we just got her on Saturday :(

Emmy is not concerned about Lotte, she's more concerned about not getting enough attention now!
Emmy has 5.800 g, Lotte is now at 1.100 g, so it looks a little dangerous when she's hovering over her like this ;)

Will it be Lotte ?!?!?!?

I visited a lady today who works with a group that rescues cats in Spain, actually in Mallorca.

This little one arrived in Germany last Monday, is approx. 8 - 10 weeks old and I honestly think I need to have her.
DH is a bit worried about our two "ladies". Will they accept her, will they fight her?
I need to make that decision tonight!

This is her, I already named her "Lotte" ;)
